What is the difference between a Membership Donation and a Survivors
Fund Donation? Why didnt I get decals when I made my Survivors
Donations made for membership receive the automobile decals. Donations
made for membership, special contributions, and other events are used
to fulfill our mission statement to help the dependents of firefighters
and law enforcement officers, provide law enforcement agencies with
life-protecting equipment, and provide law enforcement with educational
100% of your tax-deductible donation to the Survivors Fund goes to
help the dependents of peace officers and firefighters. When the unfortunate
happens - when an officer or firefighter is killed in the line of
duty The 100 Club appeals to its members and to the public
for donations and disburses funds to the dependents of the officer

When should I expect my receipt and/or vehicle decals?
The 100 Club gets many calls from our members asking about the timing on acknowledging donations they have made. Because we have a small staff, the majority of our membership and survivor fund donations are acknowledged by a Mail House. This method of acknowledging gifts allows The 100 Club to cut the cost of mailing on a daily business and use the funds to further the programs to help Law Enforcement and Firefighters.
MEMBERSHIP DONATIONS made between the 1st and the 15th of the month are sent to our mail house on the 15th of the month. Members should receive their Membership Cards and vehicle decals within two to three days. If additional automobile decals are requested they should arrive approximately at the same time, but will be sent in a separate envelope. This same procedure is used for Membership Donations made between the 16th and the END OF THE MONTH, with the acknowledgements sent to the mail house on the last day of the month.
SURVIVORS FUND DONATIONS are divided into the same time frames as the Membership Donations.
ALL OTHER GIFTS are processed by The 100 Club Staff and acknowledgements sent within a day or two of processing.
